I picked this beautiful "suite motel" based on Trip Advisor when we came to see the annual turtle nesting. We liked it so much the first time, we came back just to relax. It's a gem!
Think small " boutique" motel. ( Like a boutique hotel, but in a motel layout) The new owners took a family style motel, in a prime location on the ocean, and did a gorgeous upgrade to suites with great amenities. Each suite has a living room, 2 bedrooms, full kitchen. I love the rooms- beautifully decorated, nicely furnished.
It's a great location- gorgeous quiet beach, close to nature! There's also a beautiful pool; outdoor seating area with a grill; bikes, beach chairs and surf boards!
The website describes this well, except that it's a much more " low key" , tranquil place than I thought it would be from the website. Wonderful stay each time, and we'll be back.
I almost hate to provide this great review, because once "word gets out", it may be hard to get a reservation! ( this is the kind of " value for the money" that is hard to find, and I don't want there to be a waiting list when I want to come back).
